Do You Actually Know What Defines a Burrito?

first_img Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Business News Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Pasadena Eats, The Dining Blog Do You Actually Know What Defines a Burrito? From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, June 6, 2016 | 1:18 pm Burritos are one of the most popular Tex-Mex items on the menu. Anyone who knows a little Spanish has probably raised their eyebrows at the name, however. In Spanish, a “burro” is a donkey, and “burrito,” the diminutive form, means “little donkey.” So what is burrito? Get back to the burrito’s California roots at El Patron. You can get a Classic Burrito with your choice of meat: Asada (Beef), Carnitas (Pork), Pastor (BBQ Pork), Pollo (Chicken) or Lenghua (Tongue) served with rice, pico de gallo, cheese & salsa, Burrito Banado/Wet Burrito with an addition of rice or simple vegetarian Rice, Beans & Cheese Burrito – no meat but loads of delicious cheese and beans. More Cool Stuff However the food got its name, it certainly caught on quickly and has evolved a great deal since it was first created. A simple mix of meat, cheese, and tomato has turned into a full-blown meal with rice, beans, meat, cheese, vegetables, and sauces wrapped up in a heavy-duty tortilla. Subscribe Community News First Heatwave Expected Next Week The burrito made its way into the US in the 1900s. The first mention of a burrito on a U.S. menu was in the 1930s at the El Cholo Spanish Café in Los Angeles, though burritos had likely been making the rounds in the states before then. California is still well-known for its burritos, with the Mission burrito—arguably the most popular style of burrito in the United States—originating in San Francisco.

No children waiting for foster care in Mid West

first_imgTUSLA – Child and Family Agency has acknowledged the publication this Wednesday of the HIQA inspection report in relation to fostering services in the Tusla Mid West area (Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary).The review covers an inspection of foster care services in April-May this year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Commenting on the report’s release, Dr Aisling Gillen, Service Director for Tusla West, welcomed any scrutiny of their fostering services as “we strive to offer the best possible services to foster children and foster carers”.HIQA confirmed many positive aspects of the services Tusla provide in the Mid-West. The inspection report revealed that there were no children awaiting a foster care placement in the area and shows that 82 per cent of children had an allocated social worker. 94 per cent of children were visited by a social worker in line with regulations, and the majority of child-in-care reviews were up to date.Also commenting on the report, Dr Caroline Cullen, Tusla Area Manager for the Mid West, said they are wholly committed to making their fostering service even stronger.“There are some areas that we can improve on in the Mid West. To this end, we have commenced the implementation of the actions outlined in this report and will continue to do so over the next 12 months and beyond. We are pleased to note the positive elements of the report, and are addressing all of the issues which were identified by HIQA,” Dr Cullen explained.“Foster care is a central element of our child protection system. Tusla is working to enhance our foster care system across the Mid West to provide positive and safe environments for children and young people who can’t live at home, and to support families in the three counties who open their homes to vulnerable children. Tusla is subject to consistent oversight, and this supports us to ensure that our services provide good quality, timely and appropriate interventions for children and their families.”Separately, Tusla aims to increase the number of foster carers available in the State this year. They intend to commence a recruitment drive for additional foster carers in the coming months. Currently, across Ireland some 4,440 people open their homes and lives to approximately 5,530 foster children.   WhatsApp NewsCommunityNo children waiting for foster care in Mid WestBy Alan Jacques – August 8, 2019 630 Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Linkedin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleLimerick Rose is gearing up for Tralee festivalNext articleHelp our little hero plea Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Print Email Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat center_img Facebook Twitter Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Advertisement TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

“Penal Action Cannot Be Differentiated Based On Religious Practice”: Plea In Supreme Court Challenges Legal Recognition Of Bigamy Among Muslims

In the present case the situation is that Muslims are excluded from the penal law related to bigamy whereas other citizens are liable to be punished for the same act.It is stated that the petition has been filed under Article 32 of the Constitution of India to declare that the bigamy in so far it has been made applicable in India by Section 2 of Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act,1937 is ultra vires to Article 14 of the Constitution of India and by virtue of Article 13(1) of the Constitution same has become void and non-est.”The second marriage solemnized by a Hindu, Christian or Parsi during the life time of his spouse would be punishable under Section 494 of IPC but at the same time such marriage is not punishable if contacted by a Muslim. Therefore, Section 494 is making discrimination only on the basis of religion, which is per se in violation of Article 14 and 15(1) of the Constitution of India”- Plea in SCThe main thrust of the plea is that State cannot make criminal law in such a manner that creates discrimination by making the same act (bigamy) punishable for some & “enjoyable” for others.”In India the irony is that bigamy has been made punishable under Section 494 of IPC subject to applicability of personal law”The petitioner contends that section 494 of IPC provides that ‘Whoever, having a husband or wife living, marries in any case in which such marriage is void by reason of its taking place during the life of such husband or wife, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine’.”From the aforesaid provision it is clear that the offence of bigamy is punishable only when the second marriage is void. It means that the validity of second marriage depends on the recognition of such marriage under personal law,” the plea reads.The plea further states that under para 256 Muhamedan Law the marriage solemnized by woman during life time of her husband is void and she may be punished under Section 494 of IPC. “Therefore, a Muslim woman is being discriminated before law. The Muslim Law even though permits male persons to have four wives at the time but at the same time para 256 (as per Mulla Muhammdan Law) forbids the female to contact another during the life time of her husband,” the plea reads. This, the petitioner has stated is “gender bias” and is discriminatory and against the provisions contained in Article 14 of the Constitution of India.It is contended that Article 25 of the Constitution protects only the essential religious practices of a religion and  personal law of the subjects, unconnected with religion, does not come within the scope of Article 25 of the Constitution of India. The practice of Bigamy is not an essential part of Muslims or any other religion, the plea states.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The public interest litigation also opposes appointment of Mr. Praveen Sinha as an interim / acting CBI Director, after expiry of the term of the last incumbent viz. Mr. Rishi Kumar Shukla on February 2 this year. The plea states that appointment of a full-time Director as per the statutory law is necessary for upholding the rule of law and for enforcement of the rights of the citizens under Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India. It also refers to the case of Prakash Singh v. Union of India, (2019) 4 SCC 13, against appointment of Director General of Police on acting basis and argues that just like DGPs are heads of police force in states and CBI Director leads the premier Central Investigating agency. Thus, the aforesaid direction should be squarely applicable in the case of CBI Director to the effect that the Centre shall never conceive of the idea of appointing any person on the post of Director, CBI on an acting/interim basis. It has urged the Court to issue directions to the Central Government to appoint a regular Director of CBI forthwith in accordance with Section 4A of the DSPE Act. [The provision states that the Central Government shall appoint the CBI Director on the recommendation of the Committee consisting of the Prime Minister, the Leader of Opposition and the Chief Justice of India.] That apart, the Petitioner has sought a general direction to the Union of India, to make sure that it initiates and completes the process of selection of the CBI Director well in advance, atleast 1 to 2 months before the date on which the vacancy in the post of CBI Director is about to occur in future. In this context, it has referred to the case of Anjali Bhardwaj v. Union of India, (2019) 18 SCC 246, where the Supreme Court with regard to vacancies at Central Information Commission and State Information Commissions had held, “it would be apposite that the process for filling up of a particular vacancy is initiated 1 to 2 months before the date on which the vacancy is likely to occur so that there is not much time-lag between the occurrence of vacancy and filling up of the said vacancy.”The plea is filed through Advocate Prashant Bhushan.Next Storylast_img read more

16 top tips for finding the right HR job

first_img16 top tips for finding the right HR jobOn 26 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today Findingthe ideal job in HR can sometimes seem an overwhelming task Fiona Brady offersa checklist for the least stressful route to the right career move..1.Explore all options within your current organisation first, are they goingto be implementing her? If a re-structure were to happen what opportunities maycome out of it? Too many walk away from uncertainty to miss opportunities of alife time to be given to an outsider with no internal credibility.2.Improve relations whether you stay or go. Have you really blown it with your boss or could a conscious week of egostroking and positive vibes put you back in the race.3.No race to be won. Acknowledge and accept when there is no race forpromotion to be won as it can be soul destroying to sit out the ten yearsentence for good behaviour only to find out you could of achieved more infive?4.Stick with what you really want, what you really really want and are good at?Complete your CPD log to visilise where you are going and where you want to be,putting pen to paper is often the first step in the process of committing to apersonal objectives.5.Contact old friends and colleagues to remind you of how good you are andeasy to work  with. Not only will youpick up knowledge it will refresh that flagging self esteem.6.Start with the end in mind if you want to be a HR Manager, research therole and check that it is the type of role and responsibilities you would enjoyand be good.7.Wanting and hating. Dodging political pressure can reduce quality of lifenot improve it.8.Align your CV as you would a proposal. Look on line prepare three CVs onefor industry one for position and one generalist to please all palates.9.Keep it factual explaining what you really want not only will it rule youout but will rule you in on the opportunities you are really interested in andeliminate those ones for dire emergency.10.Read the advert! Phone the agency to find out more it you think you can doit and have the experience prepare a list of five benefits on why you should beput forward highlighting them off the job description, email it with your CV.You won’t always get a Yes but at least you will have been considered.11.Keep it to yourself – Network with HR colleagues but do not tell them thecompany you are about to get that guaranteed interview for unless you enjoystiffer competition.12.Survivor alliances? Network within the CIPD branch and at events there maynot be immediate jobs but more alliances.13.Don’t wait for a job to come to you go out and find the company you havealways fancied working for through referral, press or feedback from friends andfamily. Speculative applications do work it is all part of an agency toolkit.14.Why wait for a crisis until you look for a job? Be resilient keep up activitylevels on job hunting once a month even if you are having a good run as itcould be the right opportunity at the wrong time.15.Be careful of spurious recruiters? How often have you joined a company tofind lots of personal problems that were kindly not mentioned, inhumanepolitical enemies ready for their next victim or an over enthusiasticorganisation whom forgot to tell you that sales turnover has halved but staffturnover has doubled. In fact in 1997 government figures showed that 70% of newunemployed people had been made redundant in the first three months of employment.16.Go with your instinct. Start as you mean to go on, listen to your innerfeelings, impressions its like any relationship if you look for the potentialrather than role you could end up divorcing yourself from the role.Psychological contract can be band aided but can often be broken with themistrust of misunderstanding never to be repaired.FionaBradyis a recruitment consultant at hrhr Ltd www.hrhrpersonnelservices.com Comments are closed.
